Exactly! A lock/ready button would be great. I’ve had games where my character gets changed so last second I end up as Jack or something. I would have rather been given a chance to choose another at the very least
It’s hard enough finding a match across 7 difficultlies (remove 2 or 3). They just need to cut the no duplicate bs. If everyone starts being jd that’s your fault for not properly balancing the classes. I don’t see any value to keeping this especially if they plan on adding more tanks, engineers, scouts, etc.
I think they thought this game would maintain a huge player base. As the numbers dwindle they will need to find ways to keep match search times down and removing difficulties and the no duplicate rule will need to be considered.
I’m actually OK with not having any duplicates and I hope TC sticks to its vision, I’d personally hate to see duplicate characters in Escape and I actually like it the way it is now. TC should create more decent (and balanced out) alternatives though.
It can also occur if someone joins a lobby as the timer ends and duplicates don’t get switched out. Made me end up in matches with duplicate Kaits at least once.
What’s the problem with having duplicates anyway? I tend not to make use of that but it doesn’t seem to have a major effect on gameplay as I have passed Master runs with two Macs and one Keegan in Escape(note : wasn’t me doing the glitching, I just went along with it and I personally don’t care for leaderboards that much, but usually prefer to not have duplicates in Escape).
No it’s not fine. It takes away player freedom of choice. I don’t want to be forced to play a character I don’t like for a particular class. They need to unbind classes and get rid of the hero system. It is a terrible concept.
